Could More Women In Top Spots Have Saved Wall Street?

Could the demise of Wall Street have been avoided if more women were occupying corner offices fifty-some floors high in the sky?

Global Vice Chairman of Ernst & Young Beth Brooke, ranked by Forbes as one of the 100 most powerful women in the world, cites research in a CNBC "Street Fight" supporting the position that yes, it is very possible, even likely, that things would look different now if a little more estrogen were involved in major Wall Street decisions in the past few years.

No matter if you buy Brooke's belief or not, one can't help but think that of all the smug CEOs, non-regulating regulators, Ponzi schemers and Bob Allen “Antigua” Stanfords of the world who topped headlines in the past two years, not one was a woman.
